Hippeastrum (Colibri Group) 'Balentino'

 

Hippeastrum 'Balentino'

Amaryllis is commonly used as a name for cultivars of the Hippeastrum genus, sold mainly as flowering bulbs, particularly in late autumn for flowering at Christmas in the northern hemisphere.These large bulbs are related to Amaryllis, but have been cultivated to grow indoors and bloom in Winter months. The colours and shape of the flowers are more varied than the outdoor Amaryllis. They have strap-like leaves and very large, colourful, trumpet-shaped flowers atop a leafless stem. 'Balentino' is a new type of Amaryllis suitable for garden planting in warmer regions. They will produce up to 3 stems per bulb each bearing up to four slender trumpets. Plant from early spring onwards in well drained soil. Also ideal for pots.
